Year 6 Teacher

I was born and raised in Harrow, a borough to the North West of London, which is most famous for a prestigious boys’ school attended by Winston Churchill. I am proud of my London heritage and enjoyed growing up in a vibrant city full of life, culture and history. Away from the classroom my biggest passions include netball and travelling. I have been playing in a local netball league for five years and I enjoy working as part of a team to improve fitness and indulge in some friendly competition! I love to travel and am always keen to learn more about the culture and history of other countries. In recent years I have visited numerous countries including New Zealand, Australia, many European countries and, of course, The United States of America! I also use travel to test my personal boundaries; in April 2017 I walked the Inca Trail in Peru. After teaching in London for four years, I have decided it is time to spread my wings and move to Chicago. Having previously visited the city, I was inspired by its lively and friendly atmosphere.  I am thoroughly looking forward to the challenge of working in another fantastic city!

Inspiring children is one of my biggest passions.  I am a strong believer in promoting learning through guidance and imagination. I know that a creative and diverse learning experience is at the centre of a child’s development and I always look for ways to help children grow into confident individuals by stepping out of their comfort zone. Using a creative and balanced curriculum provides a strong foundation on which to build for the future, and by recognising a child’s strengths, I can encourage them to support their peers, explore their potential and challenge themselves in all aspects of their lives. With this in mind, I always ensure my pupils enjoy their learning experience and ultimately strive to be the best they can be!
